"To be immortalized in the Quebec Sports Hall of Fame is to receive the most important recognition offered by the Quebec sports community to people who have made an exceptional mark on the growth or development of sport in Quebec," said Jacques Baril, president of the Panthéon and the Musée des sports du Québec. The exploits and contributions of these personalities command admiration and oblige us to a duty of memory. This is why it is essential to immortalize the exploits of athletes and builders so that our sporting history may live. "
These personalities were chosen by a twelve-member selection committee, chaired by Mr. Richard de Carufel and composed of Hall of Fame athletes as well as personalities from the sports community and the media.
